Sorry Peoria, I hate to do this to you. But, I’m moving to Gilbert. Money Magazine has ranked it among the Top 100 places to live in the US! I’ll tell you how high it ranked (you’ll be surprised), why, and how many OTHER cities in Arizona made the list when you click more…
#36! That’s right. According to Money Magazine, there are only 35 other cities in the US where it’s better to live than Gilbert! Here’s what the article says:
This safe city a half-hour outside Phoenix celebrates the anniversary of the paving of Gilbert Road each year during Gilbert Days, a three-day event that includes a rodeo, a parade and a carnival.
The housing market was hit here hard, though, and it has yet to recover.
Only ONE other AZ city made the list. That would be Scottsdale. It was a bit further down, though.
Unfortunately, the real-estate bust hit Scottsdale hard; home prices have plunged, and foreclosures are a major problem.
2 cities may seem like small potatoes. But, remember, last year…NO cities made the list! However, in 2008, Gilbert (28), Chandler (30), Scottsdale (47) and Peoria (55) ALL made it. So, we’re making a comeback!
